WWC157 - Heidi's "All About Occasions" Challenge

Wednesday has rolled around again and that means it's time for a new Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  This week Heidi is hosting our "All About Occasions" Challenge.  When spending some time looking over various blogs I follow, I came across a wonderful design done by Nance Leedy.  She made her own designer paper which you can see HERE.  I loved it so much, I just had to give it a try.  I didn't have some of the colors she used so I substituted and I changed up the images. 


Stamp Set:  Timeless Textures, Sunshine Sayings (both Stampin' Up!); Inks:  Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum (all Stampin' Up!); Cardstock:  Whisper White; Patterned Paper:  My Own Designer Paper; Dies: Sunshine Sayings (Stampin' Up!); Other:  Pearl Basic Jewels, Silver Embossing Powder

For all of our challenge details and to share your project, visit the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge by clicking the image below.  We’d love to have you join us.  You have until Monday, February 19th at 6:00 p.m. Central Standard Time to link up your project.

  2. Hi Marsha, you've created a wonderful piece of designer paper. (A new career in the making?) Love the colours and shapes you've used in your stamping. The silver embossed images and die-cut sentiment add the perfect finishing touch.
